It'll be good for rock and funk, but not for metal. For a good metal tone you're gonna need some humbuckers.

yeah, you can't use it for metal although it will do the funk stuff nicely. You should look at the fat standard strat.. then you could possibly change the bridge pickup out.. i know frusciante uses the neck pickup mostly.. so you could have the strat neck pickup for funk.. then the bridge humbucker for metal.

Look at the ESP LTD 100+ Series, similar price range and you can do pretty much what you said on them, i would say avoid the 50's though. Also, check out some Ibanez perhaps.

Iron Maiden use strats, Opeth used to use strats (and I think still do sometimes?), Porcupine Tree used strats... They're not really heavy metal I suppose, but the point is you can use any guitar for any genre of music. It's not the best guitar for metal of course, especially if you're into super high-gain metal, but if you mostly play rock and a bit of metal, it should do the trick just fine, as long as you like the guitar itself.

LTD's won't do for a good funk sound IMO.

If you get a ESP LTD don't get anything under the 400 series because the ones under that are made of agathis.

What about a fender fat strat (HSS)?

Yup, and all the LTD's under 400 are made in Indonesia and have some not so good quality. The 400 series and up are made in Korea and are a lot better overall.

But seriously, a Fender Fat Strat seems like the guitar you need.

i have a fender standard strat myself. it's great for rock (which is what i mainly play) and funk, i'm not too sure about metal, it would probably do the job. I bought mine second hand so i'm not sure whether mine has any upgrades.
I like analogue Solid State amps that make no effort to be "tube-like", and I'm proud of it...

...A little too proud, to be honest.

Fender fat strat would be the best option if you want a fender. I prefer gibson/epiphone myself, but the fender standard series is an amazing value

Just put a high-output single coil pup in the bridge for metal, the rest will do rock and funk nicely

I wouldn't definately say you should get the Fat Stratocaster instead. For the little more it costs, it's a fantastic upgrade.

Oh, and if you're worried about the price, just get a Squier version. Alot of people badmouth squier, but they can be a bloody good guitar if you know how to play them right.
